Forced to flee their country and separated from their husbands, these Ukrainian women have found work in France and integrated. This is the story of Oskana Barshynova, Assistant Director of the National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kyiv and now a curator at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. We wanted to share her story and those of other Ukrainian refugees who wished to thank the French and who are eager to return to their country as soon as the Russian aggression is ended by Ukraine’s victory.
Oksana speaks of the warmth of her welcome, and her admiration for French art. The other interviews conducted by Stand with Ukraine can be accessed at the In the news section of the website, as well as at the association’s Instagram page.
